North Suncoast: Football players to watch

Picks to click | Keep an eye on these players tonight

Joey Knight's picks

RB Tyler Peak, Land O'Lakes: I see the Gators building a comfortable first-half lead against Sunlake, then going conservative in the second half. When that occurs, Peak, the team's top rusher, could get a steady feed of handoffs.

RB Austin Forte, Central: Wouldn't be shocked if this senior with the quick burst through the hole churned out 200 yards tonight against Lecanto.

WR/S Mitch Wozniak, Wesley Chapel: After a career game last week at Hernando (two INTs, seven receptions, nine tackles, one sack), it's clear this rangy junior has a nose for the ball.

Izzy Gould's picks

QB Stevie Weatherford, Land O'Lakes: The Gators sophomore has had a rough couple of weeks and is without a touchdown pass since Week 2. That will change tonight.

RB Hunter Joyer, Wesley Chapel: The Wildcats sophomore has compiled back-to-back 100-yard games and looks to have recovered from a torn pectoral muscle.

QB James Mahla, Springstead: The Eagles senior is coming off his best game of the season (15-for-21, 211 yards, one TD) and still has not thrown an interception.
